Happy Birthday Diana Ross: 5 Definitive Diana Songs
Today, (March 26th) we celebrate the birthday of "The Boss", The "Supreme" Diva of Them All, Diana Ross! We scoured YouTube to find 5 of OUR favorite Diana songs!
We all know the story of how Diana Ernestine Earle Ross rose to fame as a member of "The Supremes" becoming one of the biggest selling female groups of all-time. In 1970, she left the group to launch a solo music career that would lead to her setting a Guinness World Record as the most successful female music artist of all time having sold over 100 million records worldwide. Not to mention an acting career that included a Golden Globe and Academy Award nomination for "Lady Sings The Blues" and other memorable performances in "The Wiz" and "Mahogany". We take a look back at some of her biggest hits!
The Supremes scored their first number one hit with "Where Did I Love Go" in 1964 after Barry Gordy assigned Ross as "lead vocalist". The success of this song lead to a 3-year run of TEN (10!) number one singles for The Supremes.
After leaving the group in 1970, Ms. Ross released her first solo album "Diana Ross" and scored her first number one solo hit with "Aint No Mountain High Enough" followed by the CLASSIC sung in churches around the world to this day "Reach Out And Touch Somebody's Hand".
Trust me, we could go on and on with the hits and songs, but I'll leave you with what would become the final hit for The Supremes and their signature song: "Someday, We'll Be Together". What are some of our favorite Diana Ross songs?
